2023 Vermont Point in Time Count Statewide Report – click here!

Each year, the Chittenden County Homeless Alliance joins communities across Vermont and nationwide in conducting a Point In Time Count.  The “PIT Count” is a count and survey of all individuals and families experiencing “literal homelessness” in Vermont.  The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) considers individuals and families “literally homeless” when they live in a place not meant for human habitation (such as a tent, a vehicle, or on the streets), or in an emergency shelter, in transitional housing, or in a hotel paid for by a government or charitable organization.  Knowing how many people are homeless in Vermont helps us to provide better programs and services.

Vermont’s Annual Point-in-Time Count of sheltered and unsheltered people experiencing homelessness will take place on the night of  January 25th to January 26th, 2023. Stay tuned for upcoming information from CCHA and the Institute for Community Alliances (ICA) , our HMIS lead, on the count, including trainings, schedules, and more.

We have two PIT Count Committee and Outreach meetings left before the PIT Count!  Please join us in person or by Zoom.  (We offer stipends to folks with lived experience of homelessness – please contact Marcella Gange mgange@burlingtonvt.gov)

Wednesday, January 11th 12- 1.30pm – Burlington City Hall 3rd Floor Champlain Room  & Wednesday, January 18th 12 – 1:30pm – Burlington City Hall 1st Floor Sharon Bushor Room

This means, organizations have until February 2nd, 2023 to gather and enter data on persons who experienced homelessness on the night of January 25/26th, 2023.
